Owners Associations

WBA represents homeowner and commercial associations, as well as metropolitan districts that are responsible for covenant enforcement and design review, operations and maintenance of common and other public areas, together with required collection activities.

Owners associations face complex issues that often involve many areas of law. Attorneys of WBA have decades of experience in the representation of owners associations, and regularly share that experience through teaching classes and seminars to association managers and board members. Our attorneys have represented countless community associations throughout the State of Colorado in a myriad of matters including document amendments, rule review and drafting, compliance with applicable laws and regulations, contract drafting and review, and document interpretation. In addition, we have a dedicated staff to handle collection and covenant enforcement matters for our association clients. The firm is able to manage a high-volume collections caseload, which includes regularly attending court appearances for hearings, pre-trial conferences, returns, court-ordered mediations and trials.

We also advise clients concerning the exercise of owner association tasks (covenant enforcement and design review) by a Title 32 special district, which is permitted under Colorado law. Consolidation of owner association tasks into the functions of a Title 32 special district warrants careful consideration, and WBA attorneys are well versed in the pros and cons.
